How can I use my DATA D drive for extra storage?

Ive heard you can use this drive as extra storage space instead of "Recovery files" how can I do this? And what type of files can be moved? Programmes, pictures etc. I have 150gb free on this drive and its a shame to let it go to waste when my C drive is taking a battering ...

Thanks in advance

    You can move the Documents folder (My Documents in XP) to another location, like your D: drive. Then all your files will automatically be saved on the D: drive.

    The method to do this is a bit different for different versions of Windows. Do a web search for "move Document folder" to find instructions.
